I coached high school girls basketball for one season while pastoring in Texas. The girls exceeded their abilities and most expectations. We got smoked in a playoff game we likely should not have been in. It was fun. I have an appreciation for coaches. I enjoyed developing a relationship with Jason Penington when he coached two stints in Tuttle.
A friend of mine asked recently, “Why do people need a coach?” The question seemed both cynical and sarcastic. Maybe it is because some people find an innate interest in learning that they may pick things up without the direct questions that come when working with a mentor or a coach. I am not sure. I do know some need a coach. I was glad to have a mentor.
Another friend David Phillips believes in coaching. His experience with life, work, and ministry has been helped by a coach/mentor. Now David is returning the favor. He is launching out on a new venture and offering a variety of coaching options. Take a look.
